Truth Decay

Yesterday the world got the news that Tucker Carlson and Fox News had parted ways. There is no indication of what brought this about. What we do know is that America’s last voice of truth in the Mainstream news has been silenced.

Now, let me begin by saying that I am not sure Tucker is saved, nobody can truly know a man’s heart besides the Lord. But when it comes to the socio-political ideas of the day, he is one to whom we should listen. He takes controversial stands that go against the establishment. He has been critical of America projecting herself into wars in the Ukraine and Syria. He has called out the mainstream media’s partnership with big pharma in pushing a largely untested and potentially dangerous Covid vaccine. He has been a voice of support for Julian Assange. It was Tucker who blew the whistle on the truth about the January 6 “insurrection “ (which led to the freeing of the Q-Anon shamen). Now, Fox has parted ways with Carlson.

Isaiah 59:14, “And judgment is turned away backward, and Justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.”

We have known for quite a long time that we cannot look to the world for truth. I agree with Tucker on all of the aforementioned items. I enjoy Tucker and look forward to whatever is next for him. There is no doubt that he will be back. But for the ultimate truth, we mustn’t look to Tucker.

Our modern American society in many ways mirrors the nation of Israel. Consider the following passage: Isaiah 30:8-11 (KJV) 8 Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever: 9 That this [is] a rebellious people, lying children, children [that] will not hear the law of the LORD: 10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits: 11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.

The people of Israel would rather hear lies that were comforting than truth that may hurt. Make no mistake, we need truth. And this is where the church comes in. We need to be the pillar and ground of the truth. In a society that is based on relativism, there is truth, and that is the word of God. If we fail to preach, teach, and stand for truth today, we are not fulfilling God’s calling.

The church needs to be calling out the sin of the day, such as sodomy and transgenderism, abortion, etc. We need to be the courageous voices crying from the street corner to turn to Christ. The question is, are we willing? We will pay the price for it. Are we willing to bear the cost?
